Product Monitoring Data Platform
At this year's Fakuma Netstal Maschinen AG, Näfels, Switzerland, introduced the cloud-based production monitoring platform AnalytiX. The application is an integral component of Netstal's new e-service portal and will also be available as an independent app for smartphones and tablets running the iOS and Android operating systems.
AnalytiX enables customers to monitor their machines at any time regardless of location and benefit from automated analysis of the processes and machine conditions. This consequently saves a significant amount of time and increases employee efficiency. Supported by intelligent stability and productivity ratios, the user can recognize negative trends or performance deviations of individual machines at a glance. Stability specifications of individual machines or the entire production process involves a newly developed ratio based on an intelligent algorithm. Overall performance is detailed as a single percentage after taking into account ten crucial process parameters. In addition, the productivity coefficient determines the efficiency of overall production and individual machines, also returning this as a percentage. Another possible option is continuous online monitoring of the power consumption per cycle.
AnalytiX also enables an in-depth analysis. Analyses of over 60 different production parameters are available for each individual machine. This means, for example, that cycle times, metering stroke and injection time can be remotely monitored in real time and used for independent analyses. All the information can be conveniently called up with a few clicks or taps.
Both AnalytiX and the e-service will be available from the second quarter of 2018.
